Adams County Habitat for Humanity Open House.

GETTYSBURG, PA (June 7, 2016)— The public is invited to an open house and celebration of Adams County Habitat for Humanity’s newest home built by volunteers, 40 Franklin Street, Biglerville, on Sunday, June 12 at 1 pm. Tours and refreshments will be available, along with the chance to learn more about the non-profit organization and apply for a future home.

This is the 38th home completed by ACHFH in Adams County. It took the combined efforts of 122 volunteers six months to build this single-family home. Work took place mainly on Saturdays, with many hours of donated manpower recorded. The majority of each Habitat home’s construction is completed by volunteers, side-by-side with partner Habitat families, as well as skilled laborers—many of whom donate or discount their services. Costs are kept as low as possible so that homes are affordable to partner families.

Prospective homeowners are encouraged to apply for a home. Habitat for Humanity offers interest-free mortgages to those who qualify. Applications for future homes will be available at the open house and are also available online at
